Platinum Magic by Bruce Davis

When King’s Agents Simon Buckley and Haldron Stonebender raid a suburban farmhouse, they expect to find an illegal bomb factory full of Orc terrorists. Instead, they end up killing the sister of the current Elf ruler, turning a straightforward police raid into an international incident. Now, Simon and his team must battle terrorists, gangsters, and their own superiors to find the truth behind the High-Elf’s involvement and avert a war.

Collars and Curses by Sharon Skinner

Think being a High School sophomore is hard? Try doing it when your messed up genetic code turns you into a wolf every full moon. Not only does Merissa have to deal with high school divas, bullies and pop quizzes, she also has to hide the awkward truth that once a month she really does get bitchy. And just when she thinks she’s found someone she to whom she can actually relate, her new classmate Bree turns out to be an arrogant witch.


If they weren’t the only non-Norms in the entire town of Fair Glen—aside from the annoying half-Elf, Jeryd, who shows up and complicates things—Merissa might not give Bree the time of day. But when Bree is drawn into a curse that causes chaos at school and threatens the town, Merissa must find a way to vanquish the dark power behind the curse and keep her parents from finding out about it. All without failing biology.

Supernal Dawn, Written by J.A. Giunta and Sharon Skinner
Supernal Dawn by J.A. Giunta & Sharon Skinner

The discovery of alien artifacts across the world brought humanity together. Activating the pillars threatened to tear the world apart. The resulting vibrations did more than rumble the earth. It altered DNA, changed ordinary people into supers.

Governments were quick to step in, to quarantine and control. The affected were a threat. Civilians were never meant to have real power.

For Lee that meant choosing between the family that betrayed him and the agency offering to train him. But Ember’s loyalties were divided between the brother she’s lied to all her life and the family sworn for generations to protect the Nexus – the largest convergence of ley lines on the planet.

The path ahead would not be easy.

It was a time of beginnings, for new powers to arise. The age of heroes was upon us…

A Supernal Dawn.
